Great! Is there anywhere I can get a copy of the grabber for now?

Hmmm... I have considered this... It requires at least one program be
constant for every week day, this isn't always the case, eg. Dr Who
isn't on Friday.

With MythTV 0.14, if I push r, it starts recording, but it
automatically stops recording when the TV guide says the program
should finish. I haven't been able to stop recording on request (not
absolutely sure I have tried M, I think I have).
